Rathcline GAA Club Notes 18th October 2015

posted 18 Oct 2015, 12:55 by Rathcline Public Relations Officer

Division 1 Promotion/Relegation Playoff – After a cold foggy night in Killoe we could not be separated from Fr. Manning Gaels in the Division 1 promotion/relegation playoff. The game remained close throughout and a last gasp Shane Kenny free ensured the match went to extra-time. After an additional 20 minutes nothing could separate the sides as the game finished Fr. Manning Gaels 1-13 to Rathcline’s 0-16 points. The game now goes to a replay in a few weeks’ time.

Leinster Intermediate Championship Quarter Final – We now know our opponents in the Leinster quarter final as the Wexford champions Glynn-Barntown beat the Louth champions at the weekend. All roads lead to Wexford on Sunday November 1st for our quarter final encounter. More details of this game will be in next week’s notes.

Division 2 Patsy Reilly Cup Semi-Final – The busy period for the team continues next Saturday when we face Sean Connollys in the semi-final of the Patsy Reilly cup in Clonbonny at 4.30pm. A win here and it would see us in another final and give us another chance to win more silverware. Best of luck to all involved.

Table Quiz – There will be a table quiz for the players’ training fund in the Peer Inn next Friday night October 23rd at 9.30pm. A table of four will cost €40 and there will be a raffle on the night. With the Leinster campaign soon to begin, funds will be needed for this campaign. We ask you all to please support the table quiz, get your thinking caps on and enjoy a night of trivia and craic.

50/50 Lotto Draw – Congratulations to Tina Dowd, Thureen, who was last Monday’s winner of €360 in our 50/50 draw.

Yearly Subscription to 50/50 - Our 50/50 draw which started a year ago has proved to be very successful. We have given away over €21,000 in prize money since the draw began. We are now giving people who live abroad or away from town the opportunity to be in with a chance of winning and supporting our Leinster campaign. After a 10 year wait we are now County Intermediate Champions and on the road to Leinster. A yearly subscription will include membership for the year along with a chance of winning an average weekly prize of €400. Your support would be greatly appreciated. Please contact any member of the executive or email us at pro.rathcline.longford@gaa.ie if you're interested in subscribing.

“Battle of the Bridge” White Collar Boxing – Following on from last year’s successful Strictly Dancing Over The Bridge we have teamed up with our neighbours St. Faithleach’s again. This time for white collar boxing which will take place on Saturday November 14th in St. Faithleach’s grounds. Training has now begun for all boxers and next week’s training session will take place in the boxing club which is located in the Co-op hall at 8pm on Saturday evening.

125th Anniversary Celebrations – As the club is celebrating its 125th anniversary this year there will a special concert held on Saturday December 12th in the parish hall celebrating the occasion with lots of local talent on show. Put it in your diaries for a date not to be missed!
